Who's got the lowest Mileage Plus number (don't post complete numbers) [merged]

This topic came up on another thread. What was the lowest MPL number issued?

I have a pretty old number that starts with 001, i.e.

001xx xxx xxx

Anyone have one that starts with three or more zeros?

The last digit is a check digit. There are 10 billion possible numbers to assign.

Again, please do not post any complete Mileage Plus numbers!

Member since 1981 (first year for MP) - My wife's number is 0007x.. and became a member much later so I don't know if the numbers mean much.

00013-xxx-xxx

I signed up pretty quickly after they announced the program and still have the original card. Just looked at the card and it refreshed my memory that the service center used to be in Marina del Rey, CA. The address is on the back of the card.

00038 XXX XXX

Just FYI, in the early years Mileage Plus account numbers started with a letter. When they converted to all numbers the letter's "place" in the alphabet became a mathmatical sum of the new numeric prefix.

My letter prefix was K. It became 38. 3 plus 8 = 11. K is the 11th letter of the alphabet. Get it?

Col_Man's was probably G. basenji, E. Etc.

The numbers don't mean much anymore. After the conversion to all numbers, this formula was compromised by the new memberships and became a moot point. But if you know for a fact that the person was in Mileage Plus in the early days and has a 2 digit prefix, you can pretty much tell what their old letter prefix was.

Did all K's become 38, or were other combinations of digits adding to 11 (47, 56, 83) used too? Also, there must not have been any letters higher than R (R = 18th letter = 99).
